Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Bryant said no it is an act of ommadge and she will be delighted. Then I said what do I write under the picture and he said you just be yourself and you will see the votes come rolling in, like I said it is very very easy. So I copied out what I wrote in my diary for today and Mr.
Bryant gave it to his friend Dr. Rayner to post and they said I would be an Internet celebrity before I knew it. I said that was very very interesting but was there a place on the Internet where they could buy me an emerald bracelet since a girl doesn't want to waste her time. But Mr. Bryant said that unfortunately he was to busy today to go shopping.
I like the Internet very very much but I think I will go back to New York because the gentlemen there know how to treat a lady. View all 26 comments.

Jul 02, Alex rated it it was amazing Shelves: , unreliable-narrators , great-american-novels , rth-lifetime , new-york-literary-biography. Here is what Edith Wharton called the Great American Novel, and when it showed up on the Guardian's Top English Novels list it was suggested that perhaps she was being sarcastic.
But when one nominates the Great American Novel, one is defining America at least as much as the Novel, yes? And I'm going to venture to suggest that it may not have been the Novel that Wharton was feeling sarcastic about. There's a straight line between Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' Lorelei and Marilyn Monroe and Madonna, just as there's a line between Dorothy Parker and Sylvia Plath and Lena Dunham, and you can see why Dorothy Parker found it necessary to rebut this book with her short story Big Blonde; these are different archetypes here, and they don't go to the same parties.
But Lorelei is an archetype, one of the great characters, an American Becky Sharp, and this book makes an impact, despite its often preposterous plot. Anita Loos her real name, surprisingly, not a dirty joke you didn't get knows exactly what she's doing. Lorelei's ditzily unreliable narration packs a ton of information in between its lines.
And it's funny. Like, super funny: one of the funniest books I've ever read. I'm writing this on Thanksgiving, and the news today is filled with breathless anticipation of tomorrow, which we call Black Friday because people are most likely going to actually die in pursuit of discounts and yes, sure: Lorelei is the Great American Hero we deserve.

There may have been a little sarcasm in that, but I think she was impress Anita Loos was a successful playwright, screenwriter, and novelist, but she is best known for her best selling book, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. There may have been a little sarcasm in that, but I think she was impressed with what Loos accomplished. And having lived in NewYork and Paris, she probably got a laugh out of Lorelei's escapades through those cities. Don't be mislead into thinking this is a shallow book, pandering to a sex crazy, Jazz Age, male audience.
No, Anita Loos aims a little higher than that, with a parody of the female stereotypes created by the Hollywood film industry of the s. And along the way she creates Lorelei Lee from Little Rock Arkansas, one of the truly iconic characters in 20th century American literature. Her character was later immortalized by Marylyn Monroe in the film by the same name. While I got a laugh out of the story and characters, along the way I may have learned something about human nature and single minded determination. View all 7 comments.

It was recently brought to my attention by a fellow goodreads pal thank you Paul I was able to find a copy in our local library that had it stored in its basement. It included the original borrowing records showing it was 1st checked out April and completed with fabulous illustrations.
The story is one long scream and left me very intreeged to improve my brain and find more writing by Loos, providing I can talk my maid into reading it for me. Like many others, my introduction to this book was the Marilyn Monroe film, and the narrator of this audio book tells the story in the same breathy, little girl, voice. The novel was actually written in and was inspired when the author witnessed the reaction of intellectual male friends of hers, to a fellow female traveller on a train journey.
Having asked why this lady inspired such interest, she deduced it was her blonde hair that caused such slavish devotion and an idea was born. Lorelei Like many others, my introduction to this book was the Marilyn Monroe film, and the narrator of this audio book tells the story in the same breathy, little girl, voice. Lorelei Lee tells her story as a diary; from her life in a small town and her re-naming in a courtroom after a little trouble which, later in the story, comes back to haunt her.
This is a sly look about a young woman who uses her beauty, and charm, to get the most that she can out of life. Lorelei has a very sensible idea about the world, and her place in it, and this audio book was a delight to listen to.

In the s, Anita Loos, a gorgeous intelligent brunette Hollywood writer became pretty well pissed off at the fact that the men around her preferred dumb blondes.

Review of the audiobook edition: This Audible edition starts with an introduction and a preface I guess which are labelled as Chapters 1 and 2. If, like me, you prefer to skip introductions, then start with Chapter 3! Patrice O'Neill's voice was excellent for this novel; a bit reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe in the film version but not overly so. View 2 comments. This purports to be the diary of Lorelie Lee, gold-digging dumb blonde extraordinaire. If I ever saw the movie, I have entirely forgotten it. This is barely worth 3 stars.

I found much of it thoroughly amusing, especially the first half. Well Dorothy and I are really on the ship sailing to Europe as anyone c This purports to be the diary of Lorelie Lee, gold-digging dumb blonde extraordinaire. Well Dorothy and I are really on the ship sailing to Europe as anyone could tell by looking at the ocean. But it got tedious. It seems the author had a beginning sketch, but because her premise is that the character is one-dimensional, there was no place to take the novel. Aug 01, Kate Tooley rated it really liked it.

Mencken, who had a weakness for blondes. The narrator of this volume, Lorelei Lee, is a formidable member of the species. She is in fact remarkably single-minded.
